    Cleaning stovetop drip pans

    Advertisements
    What is best for cleaning the drip pans under your stove coils?

    I've been soaking mine in water/vinegar/baking soda. A lot has come off with a sponge, but there are still some dark spots. What have you tried that works best?

    The only thing I've found that gets all the spots off is the really strong oven cleaner stuff. But I don't like using that stuff so I just leave the spots

    I normally use BarKeeper's Friend. If that doesn't work, I mix liquid dishwasher gel with an equal amount of vinegar and let it soak.

    I have heard that ammonia works great. I can't use it because the smell triggers headaches but I know people who swear by it.

    I've also heard that letting it soak in a zippy bag full of ammonia is amazing for cleaning them.

    I use a vinegar soak mixed with hot water and then scrub with a kitchen magic eraser and it works pretty darn well.

    Gallon ziplock with 1/2 cup of ammonia. Stains wipe right out after sitting for several hours. Best if you work with ammonia outside or under the exhaust of your oven.

    Buying new ones
    Honestly, DH cleans them, just a sponge and dish soap. It works pretty well but I don't use the stove very often so they don't get really dirty.

    Buy new ones, then cover those with foil.
